Season Two

Comments

  1. Oh look you did a thing. (That’s the best one I’ve seen yet and I don’t even watch the show!)

  2. The Rust-y Flat Circle is a Buzzsaw Cutting a Straight Line from Genesis to Revelation says:

    The more I think about Season Two, the more I think it should be about a seemingly naive Nigerian nun who goes to Rome to make a formal report on the state of her order – and also, on her own time, look into some apparent financial irregularities that are troubling her. She gets noticed by some powerful, unsavory forces within the Church, and also, by a couple of good-hearted if slightly worldly cardinals…

  3. THE THANATOS SYNDROME. STOP
    MORE TO FOLLOW SOON. STOP

    (unless of course you’ve already made that connection but I have to type out my manifesto so maybe we can compare notes one day)

          Oh look you did a thing. (Unfortunately, I haven’t [yet!] seen the show, so can’t comment. But many thanks for giving us a sneak peek!)

          • just fyi I don’t think I spoiled anything. And the mystery takes second place to McConnaughey saying things anyway.

              And the mystery takes second place to [Rorschach] saying things anyway.

              And the mystery takes second place to [Father Brown] saying things anyway.

              And the mystery takes second place to [Nick and Nora Charles] saying things anyway.

              And the mystery takes second place to [Philip Marlowe] saying things anyway.

              And the mystery takes second place to [Bob Hoskins reacting to cartoons] anyway.

              And the mystery takes second place to [David Lynch being David Lynch] anyway.

              Hurm.

              Trusting your note that the essay draft was spoiler-safe, I read and enjoyed it! You are on to something: Cohle’s and More’s backstories are even more similar than you let on. Recall that, in Love in the Ruins, More traces his own spiritual, moral, and psychological deterioration — at least in part — to the death of his young daughter (from a slow, gruesome illness).

              I was looking forward to True Detective before, and even more so now. Thank you again for this preview.

          That was nicely done, Paul. I bet if we worked at it, we could pick up a little of Rust in Lancelot Lamar as well.
